The episode picks up right where we left off in episode six, with Adams inviting seven men—Bennett, Blake, Demar, Ivan, Kenny, Riley and Zac—on a group date. They’re tasked with writing an original love song for the Bachelorette in the hope of winning the grand prize: one-on-one time with Adams. Despite the impressive effort, Ivan takes home the “W.”
Later that night, Ivan joins Adams in her suite, where they bond over a game of “The Floor Is Lava.” They also discussed their shared experience growing up mixed race and the positive impact of the Black Lives Matter movement. She gives him the rose (natch).
After meeting up with Becca Kufrin and Sydney Lotuaco, Adams invites the six men who didn’t win the song competition—Bennett, Blake, Demar, Kenny, Riley and Zac—on another group date. This time, they engage in a vomit-inducing game of “Truth or Dare.” At the end of the night, Zac gets the group date rose.
Before the cocktail party, Ben and Ed sneak away from the group to steal more time with Adams. The catch? Ed accidentally goes to Chris Harrison’s room (not Adams’s), which results in unexpected “boy time.”
